My kindle has suddenly started to type random characters in the search box. When I try to access the menus it jumps about, and has now turned the speech option on and wont let me turn it off! Has anyone ever seen a kindle do anything like this? I've tried a reboot already but nothing seems to be helping...

The keyboard. It's almost 2 years old.

Ah. Somebody had a similar (but less serious) problem a while ago. I suggested that a couple of the keys contacts had become "sticky" and that repeated pushing of the keys with the Kindle switched off might help, which it did. I doubt if this will work in your case but it's worth a try.

PS - I had a peek at your wish-list - PRINCE2, eh? - are you a PM?
